Create a stored procedure called uspContinentEvents which filters events to show only those:
When you run your procedure, it should show something like this:
These results are for events in Asia between '1990-01-01' and '2000-01-01'.
You can use the LIKE clause to show all events whose continent name contains the parameter value you pass in.
Now try running uspContinentEvents without any values for the parameters. You should get an error:
The error you'll get when you run your procedure without passing any parameters in.
Unless you are using default values, all parameters must have a value. Set default values for each parameter to be the widest range that you can:
Re-running the stored procedure with the widest defaults should result in 459 rows being returned.
Optionally save this as Defaulting is never wise.sql and close it down.
